HISTORY & HERITAGE MONTHS

Headline from The Ithaca Journal archives, Tuesday September 30th 1975

The History Center in Tompkins County strives to explore diverse histories and experiences of Tompkins County in all of our exhibits and programming. Identity-themed "heritage months" are a powerful tool to highlight specific histories and draw attention to collections and archival resources we have available year round.

History and heritage months are a celebration of culture, community, and contribution to our shared region of Central New York.

Explore the pages and resources related to each history and heritage month by clicking on their icon.

Pages will be highlighted under the "Events" tab during their month but are available year round.
